not want to miss with mary jo. mary joe does not intimidate easily. >> the second obama administration began with an 19- minute 2114-word address that senate minority leader mitch mcconnell described as an unabashedly left-of-center speech that brought back memories of the democratic party of ages past. >> our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity, until bright young students and engineers are lifted in our work force rather than expelled in our country. . our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the lanes of the town know that they are cared for. and cherished. and always safe from harm. >> immigration and gun-control. at his comments on the need to preserve medicare, medicaid, and social security, and you have a good picture of where you want to take the country. how would you grade the president's speech a to f? >> i thought it was a lot better than the first speech. the crowd had a blast. it was a speech that does represent his o
that in five years. he was right. but no obama's administration ran up another $6 trillion. how was that possible? barack obama at believed this. >> barack obama has a debt problem into increase the debt limit. >> but president demands congress raise the debt limit without condition. i want the old obama back. then to one scares the heck out of me. by a fear he will bankrupt the country. we will be back next week. [applause] nearly a dozen of those weapons on display at the news conference, including the so-called assault weapon used by the newtown, connecticut, shooter, atlanta. the senators placed the blame not on that young man with serious mental illness was left untreated, but rather on gun laws. >> weaken gun laws allow these mass killings to be carried out again and again. weapons designed originally for the military to kill large numbers of people are replicated for civil unions. lou: after four days of non-relativity from the president dispatched his vice president for a not so successful joe biden fireside chat made famous by fdr. not so successful because vice preside
-- does hillary clinton and the obama administration view the libya intervention as a success? how much did they view that intervention as what precipitated the set of effects afterwards? >> militarily the intervention by nato in libya was clearly judged widely as a success. it forced gadhafi out of power and it changed a state that had been among the most draconian in its practices at all levels into something that opened up hope for six and a half million people. the problem is the united states has never been very good, whether it's in afghanistan, iraq, in creating an alternative and the bol line is the united states basically walked away when it came to how do you create a new state, how do you facilitate the diverse forces, whether it's the tribal elements, more than 300 militias that had formed during that brief eight-month involvement, how do you stem the flow of weaponry and create an alternative. if you saw charlie wilson's war, at the very ending of the movie when he says i raised all this money, billions of dollars for arms to the opposition to fight off the soviets but i co
in mali and what they are doing there. is this worrying the obama administration? is there support for this? >> well, obviously the united states is providing refueling facilities for the french warplanes so, yes, the united states is playing a role already. i think there are no comfortable choices and that's one of the realities across the region today, whether it's in mali or syria, post revolution egypt and libya. the united states doesn't have a grand strategy. it's looking at each case individually. the reality is that with islamists taking over northern mali, which is larger than france, just that part of it, this then creates a greater threat throughout the region. and unfortunately the outside world dithered for way too long in trying to figure out a response and to the earlier point, the fact is the africans can't do it themselves. there's been talk for two decades about creating an africa rapid deployment force and they haven't been able to bring it together, provide training, cohesion, command and control and as a result there is no local or regional alternative. >> afri
as march. if i can call that early. is it your sense, do you get any sense from the obama administration whether it's interior or state, whatever it may be come the white house itself, that the president has rethought this matter and is taking a different approach? >> well, i don't know that for sure. i can tell you that we have been working with his department of state during this entire process. they have been to all the informational hearings and they know exactly what is going to be in the environmental impact statement. so i'm not sure if they need more information than that. it is time to say yes or no, approve it or not, and i think most americans would say that it's time to approve it, let's get moving forward. lou: okay, thank you very much for being with us. we will be watching along with you and the folks to see what the contribution that the keystone xl pipeline will be making for energy future. thank you, governor. >> thank you, lou. lou: up next, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, senator john kerry, certain to be the next secretary of state. we will take
their children. >> ifill: but sparks flew when senate republicans accused the obama administration of deceiving the nation by initially suggesting the benghazi attack was something other than terrorism. senator ron johnson of wisconsin: >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact... >> but could-- but, you know... >> ...and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> and-- with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. now, honestly, i will do my best to answer your questions about this. but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. >> ifill: republican john mccain
will be judged on the merits. it is the obama administration policy, is al qaeda decimated, is al qaeda on the run? or is there a resurgence in north africa? is it working? the fail tower engage in libya and the total failure in syria, way behind the french in mali. how is that working out? i think the approximately policies will be judged on the substance on benghazi. and the women in combat infantry, that's one of those things, i think the elites in washington, including republican senators are very timid about taking that on because of the war on women stuff and the 2012 campaign. they don't want to look retrograde or reactionary. i wrote about it today, saying, expressing deep skepticism about it. i think it's really a bad idea. i mean, 40 kids in a combat outpost, 38 of them, guys, two girls. how's that going to work out in terms a million things. it's bad in so many ways i think. i think it makes the military's already difficult job so much more difficult. for what good? it is not like there is a huge demand for this. they have been elquant to say that the women who served in the
. the congress has not fully funded the obama administration request for embassy security, and, two, more funding for some of the governments in the region that need to be stronger to protect us. she pointed out congress has blocked funds that would have us assist the libyan government so, responsibility of security is the host government's responsibility. we rely on them. and that militia group in benghazi failed us on september 11th and 12th, so we need to reenforce the ability of these governments to protect our embassies and consulates in 275 different locations around the world. >> well, that raises a point, michael lighter, if we should be in 275 locations. we don't want to retreat from the world, but basically according to the review board that admiral mullen and pickering went through, they looked through the videos and say this host government local militia just turned tail and ran before the attack, or as the attack, was taking place. >> i think what we saw in libya was a slowness on behalf of the state department to adjust to very, very different circumstances in libya. and during the
happened in libya was that the obama administration didn't want us to be heavily armed there because we were trying to develop a relationship and they wanted to look as though we were, you know, on friendlier > africa. let's get into that. africa. what's the big picture? >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. the arab revolutions have scrambled power dynamics and shattered security forces across the region. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists who look to expand their influence and plot further attacks of the kind we saw just last week in algeria. >> what happened last week in algeria, north africa, was the murder of at least 37 hostages, including three americans at the militants attack a natural gas plant in the eastern part of the country. the al-qaida splinter group called the signers with blood brigade claimed responsibility. question is the volatility in north africa an outcome of the arab spring, or does it predate the arab spring? patrick. >> john, some of it predates the arab spring, but what this shows, and what the hillary thing was about, t
inaugural the obama administration recognizes the economy is tough and there's an awful lot of challenges facing the nation. this is a much more business oriented getting the job done type of inaugural if he is tivity. >> you are pointing to the issue of money there. they cut back on expenses. >> last year they raised 53 million. they allowed corporate contributions and lifted a cap between 2009 to 50,000 now it is unlimited. there were 10 balls in 2009. they went to a number of them. this time they cut it down to just two. while the venues are bigger now it is 20,000 some strong. it is all part of trying to recognize the country has big challenges ahead. the work begins the day after tomorrow. >> carl cameron keeping an eye on it for us live. thank you very much karl. >> barbara walters is recovering from a bump on the head tonight. veteran news woman tripped and fell at the washington home of britain's ambassador to the u.s. during an inaugural party. the fall left her with a cut on her forehead. while she remained alert her friends thought it was a good idea to take her to the hospital
end of the campaign and republicans keep making accusations against the obama administration, they tried to paint a positive picture of the decimation of al qaeda for political reasons rather than sharing the specific information that they had. on one of those five sunday talk shows you were filling in and you had susan rice appear before your show. do you remember how she responded? this was five days after the attack in benghazi. >> well, first of all, i remember we were all requesting secretary of state hillary clinton because it was under her purview just in terms of booking but that's not who the white house put out. the white house controls they. they control this process of sunday shows and guests with an iron hand. >> were you surprised when susan rice was the designee? >> yes, because as president obama said later, she really had nothing to do with security decisions in benghazi or libya at large. she's the ambassador to the united nations. i didn't know what she was doing there other than that she was a high level and came armed at that point that this was not the r
-style push to get those stiff gun measures passed, that you just talked about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-ca
effects, we save health care about the cost. the obama administration a few years ago used t o -- to quote data. about $25 billion had no impact on the patient. if we spent $3 billion in these test capabilities, you save health care costs. we are looking at these game changing technologies to improve the overall cost of health care. the beauty of these is it is the essence of personalized medicine. if we can more effectively take your dna and identify the nuances of your specific disease, which cannot practice trial and error madison -- medicine. it is hundreds of billions of dollars wasted on trial and error madison. more specific approaches treating disease at the individual level will save a tremendous amount of money. >> ron andrews, d work with nih? do you take koretz with them? >> we are one of the -- do you take grants with them? >> friends as collins, the head of nih, -- francis collins, the head of nih, is talking about how health care will change. we have a great relationship with them. they grant money to researchers and misapplied researches and with technology -- and we supply
al-qaeda finds new places to operate, the second term of the obama administration will face numerous foreign policy challenges. >> usama bin laden in documents that came out of abadabad quoted as urging his cohorts to go to other places. to get away from the airplanes. get away from the drones. he specifically encouraged al-qaeda to disburse. and they did. >> senator john kerry is expected to be confirmed next week as america's top diplomat, replacing the former senate colleague who introduced him. he will face multiple crisis across the middle east. >> every day that goes by in syria, it gets worse. every day that goes by it gets worse. >> so there is, it seems to me a very strong impetus that we realize that the present policy is not succeeding. and to look at other options to prevent what is going on for now 22 months. and 60,000 dead. >> republican senator marco rubio said the obama policy on syria has been so disorganized when the situation is resolved, the people there will hate the u.s. >> as iran's best friend. grand central station for terrorists all over the world it was in
't really passed a budget resolution during the obama administration ever. but even before the house approved the new -- no budget, no pay measure. harry reid said he would bring it up and intends to pass it it watch. >> but to spare the middle class another knockdown, drag out fight we're going to proceed to work on this legislation and get it out of here as quickly as we can. >> i also want to give credit where credit is due. and i thank speaker boehner for his leadership in diffusing a fight over the debt ceiling debate. >> 86 house democrats went along with boehner in the bill. 33 republicans opposed it as insufficiently conservative, shep? >> shepard: this doesn't stop the fight though, carl. it just puts it off for a while, right? >> yeah, in the short-term it did i investigators default by exceeding the nation's borrowing limits. there has been no reduction in spending or the deficits. if that happens in the upcoming budget phase, everybody wins but it hasn't happened in washington for years. spending has been going up and there hasn't been a balanced budget since the 1990s. >
exchanges occurred after a republican senator ask why it took the obama administration so long to determine the assault was actually not the result of any spontaneous protest. here is secretary clinton's response to that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> whether it was because after protest or because of guys out for a walk one night decided they would go kill some americans, what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. martha: that was the most heated moment of the proceedings yesterday. joined by wyoming republican senator john barrasso, who was there who also questioned senator clinton. secretary of state clinton yesterday. he is on the senate foreign relations committee. welcome, good to have you here. >> thank you, martha. martha: why you surprised by that reaction? >> i was because it really does make a difference. it makes a difference to the american people. i would imagine it makes a big difference to the press and o
to take part in this because john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we've heard from both the chairman and the ranking member and just now senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on. first as that young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee, through the times that he served with such distinction as chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership, and as we work to implement the accountability review board's recommendations, he's committed to doing whatever it takes to prevent another attack and protect our people and posts around the world. now, working together, we've achieved a great deal, but the state department and usaid have a lot of unfinished business from afghanistan to nonproliferation to climate change to so much. we need
. the obama administration says it is only lending logistical support to mali's defenders, cautiously treading water while the outgoing secretaries of defense and state publicly support further u.s. involvement. last week, hillary clinton told a congressional hearing that we must recognize that groups alined with al qaeda are part of a global movement. quote, we can kill leaders but until we help establish strong democratic institutions, we are going to be faced with this level of instability, close quote. but what's more, she added, we cannot afford to retreat now when america's absent, there are consequences. yes, you heard that right. a battle cry from the same woman who grimly opposed the war in vietnam and made no secret of her distaste for american armed forces in general while she and bill occupied the white house. mami is just one domino. yes, i said domino, in the great terrorist threat to north africa. with porous boundary, the militants move easily from mali to algeria to libya, drawing more recruits each day in a land where places like timbucketue signals adventure. the wall of att
indication president obama plans on not governing for the first two years of the administration. i think the ideas we saw come out, talk about gun violence prevention, comprehensive immigration reform, climate control, these are things that the american people want. we've been talking about for the last --. bill: but you don't even know if that can pass through even the democratic senate. >> right. >> no, sure but these are the issues we need to be talking about and we ned everyone at the table. these ideas have traditionally come, we found compromises from both parties and we do need to be able to come back to those again. it is unfortunate the last congress speaker boehner had his hands tied by very extreme parties of his party. i had real hopes that speaker boehner would be able to come back to the table and i actually still think he would be able to. bill: three days in, here we are, we are 72 hours warm. got to run, monica, quick last word. >> i could see why the left think ideas of limited government, fiscal responsibility and economic freedom are extreme but pure projection on the
the obama administration is taking to beef up security at u.s. facilities worldwide. >> as i have said many times, i take responsibility, and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure. heather: doug mckelway is live for us on capitol hill with the very latest. doug, we're learning new details seems moment by moment. what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, most recent thing, senator rand paul absolutely skewering the secretary of state moments ago calling the attack on benghazi the worst since 9/11. he said he would have removed the secretary of state from her post because of that. among other new revelations she was asked directly if she was made aware of requests by ambassador stevens and others for heightened security in benghazi in light of 30 previous security threats and two specific attacks? here was her response. >> first, let's start on the night of september 11th itself and those difficult early days. i directed our response from the state department, stayed in close contact with of
and me, and the executive branch, both in the bush administration and the obama administration, to act. she is the director of the bipartisan policy center's homeland security project, and her movie, killing in the name, did an extraordinary amount to expose the fact that much of al qaeda's poor is against in a sense muslims. there's lots of big shots and mission, and one of them, a great favorite of mine, bill webster just walked in, but weighing in at 100 pounds, carrie may actually be the heavyweight. so welcome, carrie. welcome to all of you, and welcome to janet napolitano. [applause] >> are you embarrassed? oh, good. that was my intention. okay, madam secretary, let's start with cyber. you have said that a cyber 9/11 is not an if, but a win. what would a cyber 9/11 look like and how soon could it happen? >> it could happen imminently. what would it look like? it could take many forms, but let me just give one that may come to mind, which is what happens when the electric grid goes down. you saw that during sandy, and you see how that impacts everything from the ability to heat ho
. >> do you think the obama administration will get more aggressive about this in the second term? >> we were fearful. certainly there could be a lot of efficiency by allowing the state to regulate on federal lands. understaffed, generally. the appellate little better in the last couple months, maybe because there was a limelight on how long it takes -- to have been a little better in the last couple months, maybe because there was a limelight on how long it takes. there is something amiss here. would yo>> allowing the states o regulate on federal lands are more like the chances of seeing a dinosaur, or bigfoot? >>, one of the other. -- one or the other. it should happen, but duplication effort is tremendous there. >> what is washington -- what should washington be doing to encourage this? this is the big play of our time, anand economically. the equivalent to the technology boom in the 1990's. is there anything the government can do besides stay the hell out of the way? >> xm lot of things are happening right for america today. -- a lot of things are happening right for america today. t
for the obama administration. >> yeah. >> but you have really backed arming the rebels and a no-fly zone. >> yes, the rebels are -- i mean, bashar assad is being supplied by the russians and the iranians with iranian revolutionary guard on the ground with weapons. everything that the opponents of intervening in syria said would happen if we did have now happened because we haven't. the president said it's a red line, the use of chemical weapons. bashar will use that as a green light for everything less than that. 60,000 have been killed. >> how do you know who the rebels are? how do you know -- >> i met them. >> you met them all. >> no, but i've certainly met enough to know who they are, but the sad news is that as every day goes by, more and more jihadists gain more influence and there's more and more of their presence which is going to make the post-bashar assad situation even more and more complicated. the jihadists are pouring in there, so, of course, i know who they are. >> just quickly, tell me quickly, chuck hagel, does he have your backing now? you met with him this week. >> no, but i wa
the obama administration, indeed, for the next four years. >> how much do you think this is going to be questioned about clearly this hostage incident has been remarkable in its nature. what's happening in mali, northern mali also remarkable in terms of the islamist strong hold in northern mali. how much have these two hearings, i should note she's going to be in front of the senate foreign relations committee at 9:00 eastern and the house foreign affairs committee at 2:00, how much of the hearings will be what we can look forward to in terms of problems? how much will be looking back at benghazi? >> i'd say probably half and half. i think there's going to be a lot of questions from republicans about the blunders that were made. four state department officials were put on administrative leave, resigned, forced to resign including the deputy secretary of state. why was he in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, a day when everybody in the world was bracing for some sort of terrorist action? why was he there? why was he there with such limited security? and where were the libya

choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. >> and at her side one of her toughest critics on benghazi. today recounting how he and fellow vietnam veteran john kerry worked together to normalize relations with vietnam in the 1990s. >> helping to establish a relationship with vietnam that serves american interests and values rather than one that remained meyered many mutual resentment and bitterness is one of my proudest accomplishments as a senator. i expect it is one of john's as well. witnessing almost daily his exetch lear statesmanship is one of the highest privileges i've had here. >> kerry's first appearance on the senate foreign relations panel as an activist. some things don't change. >> how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in vietnam? >> i'm tired of -- >> when i first came to washington and testified, i was testifying as part of the group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about, so i respect, i think, the woman who was voicing her concerns about t
the obama administration, of course, that is france can achieve the goal of at the least containing, which is the words that they've used, al qaeda and the radicals. obviously, at one point, francois hollande went further and said, completely getting rid of them. even if france claims clear victory i have to be honest all the sources i've spoken to, u.s. government and elsewhere, are not confident in france's ability to fully do that. will the united states be able to avoid more significant involvement or not? >> i think we have to plan as if we won't be able to avoid this kind of significant involvement. basically what that means is just as general clark mentioned, we are going to have to make sure that we have the right kind of sensors? pla in place, logistics in place, do the planning that puts the right kinds of troops in place should we need to go in and do something preferably with a surgical variety. this is going to be a major issue for us because the french will be able to achieve certain tactical successes. but from the broad strategic standpoint, it's going to be more difficult
